Golden Popcorn

Blog Image

It’s a cliché, but one of the most wonderful things about acting is that it is NEVER the same twice. Every character is different, every location is different, every crew, cast and experience is different. Twilight is no exception. It is by far the most popular and recognizable project I have been a part of. But the really amazing thing about the Twilight universe is what a community it is. Never have I seen a clearer example of this than the MTV Movie Awards.

First, I want to say that being invited to a show you have seen more times than you can remember growing up is pretty exciting and a bit of a trip. But when I arrived I saw that my childhood imagination had NOT exaggerated the size of this event! The red carpet alone must have been 400 ft long. So long in fact, that you couldn’t see from one end of it to the other. It just kept going until it wrapped around a corner and out of sight!

So there I am in almost a dream state—walking the Red Carpet at the MTV Movie awards. And from out of nowhere I hear my name being called. I turn to the audience bleachers and see—in person for the first time—a fellow tweeter! Of all places to finally meet someone! A wonderful, grounding surprise—and as it happened, the first of many.

After the red carpet I make my way to the theatre where the award show will take place. If you watched the show, you must have noticed the enormity of the place. It felt absolutely MASSIVE to me, like you could fit half of Los Angeles into it!

Not quite ready to sit down, I head back out to maybe snag some popcorn (yup, the golden popcorn awards serve popcorn). Standing there I hear another voice, and turn to see—you guessed it—another tweep! The twitterverse has descended on the MTV Movie Awards!

After chatting with my tweeps for a while and finally putting some faces to the names I see on my phone from day to day, it’s time for the main event. I head into the theatre, and there, in the seat next to mine, see a face that I have not seen in YEARS: Tinsel Korey (or as you may know her, Emily). Tinsel and I did a TV show in Vancouver called Godiva’s back in 2006! We’re talking about a major time warp! I knew she was in the Twilight films but what were the chances this old Vancouver friend would be sitting right next to me?! This day just kept getting better and better!

Sitting there reminiscing about the Vancouver days, the rest of the wolf pack sits down all around and there’s a tap on my shoulder. I turn and see a familiar face looking at me with surprise.

“Noel?” He says, “Is that you?”

It’s Bronson Pelletier, and I just don’t know what to make of this anymore. Am I being punk’d? Bronson was on a show in Regina, Canada called Renegadepress.com that I did BEFORE Godiva’s! Probably 2005! This is just getting crazy! It’s a Vancouver reunion at the golden popcorn awards!

The show starts and, of course, it’s great. Lots of laughs, a fantastic trailer and a particularly entertaining kiss (yes, you remember) make it a truly memorable experience. And as I walk outside afterwards, thinking this can’t possibly get any better, I run smack into Erik Odom!

Erik and I worked together on the film for several months, and he knows my quirky, strange side fairly well. So when I started to jabber about how cool this whole thing was, all the while doing an odd little jumping dance to convey my excitement, he wasn’t surprised. But it was a different story for the ladies standing beside him who were also watching me. Well done, Noel. Well done.

Thinking I have just made a very strange first impression indeed, Erik introduces me to several of the people who hold the online Twilight universe together. I am speaking, of course, of the fansites. I think almost half my Twitter following happened to be at the MTV Movie Awards this year! : )

Finally ready to leave, I end up in a lovely conversation with one of these women who describes how wonderful it has been to get to know and watch the actors in Twilight grow and flourish in their careers. It’s a conversation that encapsulates the support and love that radiates across this world that I am now part of—the world of Twilight.

Looking back on that day, I really feel that last conversation was the perfect way to end the night. What I really remember about the awards that day is THAT conversation. That’s what it’s all about. The tweeps I got to meet, the conversations we had and my long lost friends from Vancouver. After all that, I might even have to change over to team Jacob. I mean…half the pack is from my hometown ya know?

Ya think vampires are allowed to do that? ; )

That was a genuinely honest and sweet story. Makes me feel proud to be a Twihard. This is what some people just don't get about the fandom. They think we're just a bunch of screaming teenagers and it's so much more.

I'm so glad you've got to experience it.

Glad to hear you had such a good time there, I remember thinking you looked really happy! I enjoyed watching what you did with your role in Battle:LA, and I'm just sorry we won't see you as a vamp until 2012.
BTW: vampires do whatever they want, pretty much.

0 Emmy nomination
You, most definitely, deserve an Emmy nomination for "The Hatfields and The McCoys. Your performance, along with those of Tom Berringer and Mare Winningham, was stupendous. I had to serve the web to find out where I first saw you on American Television: as the annoying "Stuckey" on Law & Order: SVU. Keep up the good work on both the small and the big screen.

I believe everything published made a great deal of sense.
However, think about this, what if you composed a catchier post title?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added a title that grabbed people's
attention? I mean Golden Popcorn is a little boring.
You could peek at Yahoo's front page and note how they write post headlines to grab people to click.
You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab people excited about
what you've got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.
